Abstract

The present work carried out on the length-weight relationship of freshwater pulmonate snail Indoplanorbis exustus. The snail population ranged between 3-17 mm shell lengths were collected from local pond near Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India and maintained in large plastic jar troughs with continuous water refreshment and aeration. Length of snail was calculated with the help of vernier caliper. The total live weight, dry tissue weight, wet tissue weight and shell weight were measured with nearest 0.01mg on one pan electronic balance. Parameters of the length (L) and weight (W) relationship were estimated by using the formula W = aLn. The relationship between shell length and different parameters was also compared and discussed. It has been found that the rate of increase of length in relation to width is proportional at every stage of its growth, but when it attained the maturity stage, the growth of snail increased very slowly.

Key Words

Length – weight relationship, vernier caliper, Indoplanorbis exustus
